NOTE: This observation is the continuation of an earlier post: Eastern Screech Owl – Pecan Tree Portrait

There was some bad news out of Irving last week. Evidently the storms that rolled through last weekend got the better of one of the owlets and he didn’t pull through. No word yet about the condition of the other owlet or the adults.

These pictures were taken before the worst of the rain. You can see from these photographs that the owlets were quite charming and inclined to clown around. Terrible that we lost one.
